the u.s. has blundrd into the scenario with one overreaction or another. bin laden needs to be the object of our hoss tilts, national security and contempt and deserves to be taken seriously. but most of what he has achieved we do ourselves. bin laden does not deserve that we even inadvertently fuffleful unimagined dreams. here's more from the president friday at this news conference. i think in this day and age there is always going to be the potential for an individual or a small group of individuals, if they are willing to die, to kill other people. some of them are going to be very well organized and some of them are going to be random. that threat is there and it's important, i think, for the american people to understand that and not to live in fear. it's just a reality of today's world that there are going to be threats out there. we have i think greatly improved our homeland security security since 9/11 occurred. you know, i am constantly impressed with the dedication that our teams apply to this problem. they are chasing down every threat, not just from al qaeda

: they haven't called yet. jenna: you've got to get on that. thank you for joining us everybody. jon: "america live" starts right now. megyn: we are learning about a new possible federal policy change, yet another one on illegal immigration. one that looks like it asks police officers to give some illegal immigrants a free pass. that's where we begin "america live." hi, everybody i'm megyn kelly. megyn: this has been an evolving thing we've been watching closely. here is how the latest policy change would work. if police pulled someone over for a traffic stop and discovered they are in the country illega illegally the poe would be forced to let that person go without calling federal agents, unless that individual is already a convicted felon. critics, not surprisingly, are already blasting the proposal. trace gallagher has the details live from our west coast newsroom. trace, here we go again. >> reporter: hey, megyn, the reason the critics are blasting this proposal is because if it is in fact adopted it would amount to a catch and release program. just so we all know what we are talking abou
's music headquart--s news headquarters. the talks are considered to be successful, at 50/50. tell us what is happening right now. >> reporter: of course the ten-month settlement freeze ends in about eight hours that's sun goes down here on the west bank, construction, though, on a preschool/kindergarten has begun on the settlement here, way, way deep into the west bank, this is the area the palestinians want for their own state and, an enormous amount of international effort has gone into try and prevent just this concrete from coming down, clearly, that has not worked. let me tell you what is at stake here and why the hole could mean the end of the peace talks as we know them. the prime minister of israel issued a 10-month freeze on construction, to try to get the palestinians to come to the negotiating table. palestinians came to the table, about a month ago, as you remember in washington and they said, if the freeze is not extended, they are walking away and the prime minister, so far, has said he is not going to extend the freeze, and, the settlers, which represent the hardest line of
was overseas. he wanted to be in the united states to do it. now, the name that he is use, cordoba house he explains in his "new york times" op-ed, it was inspired by the city in spain where muslims, christians and jews coexisted in the middle ages during a period of great cultural enrichment created by muslims. and, of course, there is nothing in this entire discussion that is free of controversy, even that statement is challenged by some people to say things weren't as good in cordoba, spain in the 1500s and 1400s, as this imam would have you believe. but you're going to hear it from him, himself, tonight on "larry king live." soledad o'brien will be interviewing him for the first time on television tonight. deborah feyerick, as well, has been following this story with great detail. if we want to know more about who this man is, how and why he got to the center of this controversy, you can hear it best from deborah. listen to this. >> reporter: you have never heard him speak. this is what imam abdul rauf has to say. >> the major theme in islam is the oneness of god. and that we should wor
. a man by the name of kashmiri. security teams are telling us that the threat is on going and american tourists oversees are potential targets. the ideal would be to hit several targets to multiply the impact. >> the potential for three countries, france, germany and britain to be attacked simultaneously is actually a global-shock attack, and it comes out of the maturity in the style of attacks that pakistan has very sadly been having for a longtime, and also that the colders are seeing in afghanistan. megyn: steve centanni is tracking all of this and the threat assessment live for us at the pentagon. steve, what are you learning? >> reporter: u.s. officials are telling us, that they had a specific -- credible information but not specific information about a terror attack that would have been focused in europe in several countries in europe. it's unclear exactly what was being planned. the plot apparently has been disrupted for the most part but the danger could continue. one scenario had terrorists swarming over tourist hotels, ala mumbai, that's exactly what happened in mumbai, india
is going to break it down for us. what do these plans do with all that money? >> first off, the $50 billion infrastructure program would rebuild or build 150,000 miles of road, 4000 miles of railroad track, 115 miles of airport runways. essentially, that would be paid for with taxes on the oil and gas industries. it's a six-year program, no new jobs created immediately, and much of the criticism is that it is essentially a payoff to the unions. there is a second plan to be unveiled tomorrow, the "wall street journal" saying that this is a $200 billion plan, $200 billion worth of tax breaks for businesses. it would speed up the writeoff, for example, bill, you spend $10,000 on a computer right now, and immediately, that $10,000 comes off your business income, taxable business income. overall, no new jobs created immediately, some say that this is the president scrambling because his polls on the economy are looking very, very bad, and both of those plans would require a vote in congress, which is not likely. bill: wow, so here we are, post labor day. i can't think of a bigger issue in the co
if kerry can hear us at this point either. but again, this is this pastor terry jones. he's planning, as he say, to burn the koran. i think we've worked out the audio. let's listen in. >> i believe what has sometimes escaped the news media, we have also received quite a bit of support. just yesterday we got a phone call from a retired special force green beret, delta force. it's his opinion that people from the field, the special forces he told us are ç100% behind us. he was saying that it was there in yugoslavia when the radical muslims, and that is the element that we are aiming at. that is the element that we want for them to back down. he said he was there in yugoslavia when they burnt down 150 churches. he said he was there as a three-story building that was a hospital, a three-story building full of christians was burnt to the ground, and they were allowed to do nothing. because of international pressure, because of policies. they were allowed to do nothing. our military men who are trained to rescue lives, to save lives, to protect our country stood in front of a three-story hospit
